Google Site’s is another tried and true constant that I use frequently as well. Google allows you to create as many individual sites as you want. Google Applications are all free and offer mega opportunities for education. It changes every day so check back often or subscribe to their newsletter.
My students have been using Carbonmade for their digital portfolios this school year and we have been extremely happy with the results. Easy uploads and NOT BLOCKED at school! That can be an issue with whatever site you try out. Carbonmade is a basic website solution specifically focused on Art portfolios. The kids love it. Some other sites that I have come across are Orbs which I just recently heard about but haven’t explored very deeply yet.
Wix is another interesting free, and useful site that is flash based. This site has beautiful templates available for use….again…these site are easy to use. Watch a video on building a free site with wix below.
Most of the sites I have included have easy to understand tutorials and directions. Have Fun Creating!
